Astro Navigation Made Easy: Using a Pocket Calculator by Francois Meyrier
Here, at last, is a bright modern approach to astro navigation, for those wanting a little more than just a textbook to pass an exam.

Best of all are the outstanding colour illustrations to assist novices in star recognition. This book will prove a real boon to anyone struggling with lengthy sight reduction tables, and is a welcome modern addition to the subject.
